Gaza: Hamas backs new Egyptian offer for Palestinian solidarity and unity

  • Hamas won 2006 parliamentary elections yet Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah and a significant part of the universal network declined to acknowledge the outcome
  • In October 2017, a past Egyptian-brokered deal, marked by Hamas and Fatah, collapsed on implementation

GAZA: The leader of Gaza’s rulers Hamas has reported his sponsorship for another Egyptian-drove push for compromise with the adversary Palestinian group Fatah.

Ismail Haniyeh, the office of Hamas leader said, he had talked with Egypt’s intelligence head Abbas Kamel to tell him of his development’s support for a fresh Egyptian-brokered push.

An announcement from the development said the two men talked about the “most recent advancements in the Palestinian issue and particularly the compromise record and compassionate activities for the general population of the Gaza Strip.”

Haniyeh’s representative Saleh Al-Arouri drove a delegation to Cairo a week ago. So far Fatah has not formally reacted to this new push for compromise.

A past Egyptian-brokered deal, marked by Hamas and Fatah in October 2017, collapsed on implementation.

In March, the leader of the Fatah-dominated West Bank government survived a roadside bomb hitting his guard in an uncommon visit to Gaza, with his partners later blaming Hamas for arranging the assault. It was trusted that compromise could ease helpful enduring in Gaza, home to around two million individuals.

The US has signaled its support for a fresh reconciliation push, but diplomats have little optimism.

Hamas won 2006 parliamentary elections but Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah and much of the international community refused to accept the result, leading to increased strife.

A year later, Hamas violently seized control of Gaza. Since then two separate Palestinian civil administrations emerged.
